How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?: 
Learning how to tell compelling stories and creating meaningful, impactful moments with the written and spoken word ... these are two critical skills I learned in my English classes at Duke (NOTE: I created an independent major via Program II that was a combination of English, Drama/Film and Sociology)
